As a Rangers fan, it was not easy to swallow the fact that we NEEDED a rebuild as we’re consistently a playoff team year after year. But the Blueshirts were a mess, and it was time to blow it all up. Over the past week, New York dealt solid role players in Nick Holden and J.T. Miller, and stars in Mike Grabner, Rick Nash and captain Ryan McDonagh to kickstart their rebuild for the future. When you looked at the roster before the trades, the Rangers seemed like a solid enough playoff team to make the postseason. But that’s...Read More

Maybe he knew this was coming all along! A few months ago, we all laughed at LaVar Ball’s outlandish plan to launch a league named the JBA (Junior Basketball Association) for players coming out of High School, looking to go pro as soon as possible.

In an interview during All-Star Weekend, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver spoke about the possibility of a new playoff seeding format where instead of the top 8 teams from each conference making the postseason, the 16 best teams in the league make it seeded in order of best record.

This offseason, the Jets have the golden opportunity to finally find their franchise QB, as they’ve had a gaping hole at the position for nearly fifty years now, and come into this spring with nearly $80M in cap, and a top 6 draft pick. And to top it off, they’re picking from an extremely strong, and deep QB free agent and draft class to fill that void in NY. Reports surfaced today that the Jets will go “all-in” for Kirk Cousins – the undisputed top QB choice for this offseason – and offer all they have for his services....Read More
“He could learn from me.” In a recent interview on the Barstool Sports PMT podcast, former Heisman trophy recipient, first round pick, and Browns QB, Johnny Manziel, made it CLEAR that he will do everything in his power to keep potential first round pick Baker Mayfield, from following in the troubling footsteps he left behind. Manziel, 25, has been out of the NFL for years following his release by Cleveland, and announced he’s working hard for a return to football on the Podcast and subsequent comments. His downfall from mega stardom to troubled NFL free agent was dominated by...Read More
